WhatsApp for Android, iOS gets support for sharing documents

Popular messaging service WhatsApp has updated its app for Android, iOS and Windows 10 Mobile. While Android and iOS gets new features, Windows Phone gets minor UI tweaks.

WhatsApp for Android finally gets the option to share document. Currently you'll be able to share PDF documents, and it is not known when Word documents and other formats will be available. The document sharing option appears in the sharing menu alongside other options. The update bumps the WhatsApp version to 2.12.454 and is being rolled out in phases, so it will take a while to reach you're device.

The new version of WhatsApp for iOS also get document sharing feature (PDF supported), and allows users to share images, videos and documents from third-party apps such as Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive. 

The update also brings improved design for browsing photos and videos, gives you the option to add solid colors to chat background, and let's you zoom in on videos while they're playing. Another key feature is that you'll now see 'Blue Ticks' (indicating that the message has been read by the other party) directly from the main WhatsApp chat list. The update bumps the WhatsApp version for iOS to 2.12.14.

WhatsApp update for Windows Phone bring changes to the UI, minor tweaks to message spacing, improved notifications and change to a user's profile page, with the status now highlighted at the bottom of the page. Unfortunately the Windows Phone version doesn't get the document sharing feature.
